Champagne Cristal

  • Champagne, the only vineyard authorized to produce AOC champagne

    Benefiting from an oceanic and semi-continental climate, calcareous soils, and the geography of this area, champagne is the only region in the world that can produce a wine bearing the appellation of champagne. For sparkling wines, there are white champagne and rosé champagne. White champagne has long been considered the best champagne, but rosé champagne is becoming more and more popular.


    The bottle of champagne, its flagship product

    Located in the north-east of France, Champagne is best known for its famous bottle of champagne. The sparkling champagne wine represents a large part of its production. However, it also produces still red, rosé and white wines. Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier are the characteristic grape varieties and the main types of champagne wine. The small meslier, pinot gris, pinot blanc, arbane and pinot de juillet are also used, in smaller proportions. Champagne is made up of three appellations of origin: champagne, the rosé des Riceys and the hillsides of Champagne.
    The viticulture in champagne has been practiced for thousands of years and has developed according to the people who have occupied its soil. The Benedictine abbeys allowed its expansion at the end of the 15th century. This experience of the vine allowed us to obtain a prestigious wine, formerly used for the coronation of kings. The bottle of champagne is today the reference for celebrating special occasions. In addition, many great champagne wine houses were founded between the 18th and 19th centuries: Veuve Clicquot, Moët & Chandon, Ruinart, for example, and are still today the greatest names in champagne and produce the elite champagne. The best champagne is, however, a subjective notion, which, as with all wines, is specific to the tastes of each wine. There is a wide variety of champagnes: raw, white, white, rosé, raw, sweet, dry, semi-dry, etc. Also, not everyone will agree on the best champagne. Champagne rosé, on the other hand, was born in the 18th century.
    Champagne wine is made according to the champagne method, whose legend has it that Dom Pérignon, a Benedictine monk, was originally.

  • Roederer is one of the most impressive estates in Champagne. Few houses have managed to reconcile this level production in a negociant operation while achieving such a consistently outstanding level of quality across the entire range. With Cristal, Chef de Caves Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon aims to make an ageworthy Champagne that is fresh and floral when young, but that is also capable of considerable development with bottle age, qualities the finest Cristals have in spades.Unfortunately because if its rabid following the vast majority of Cristal is drunk upon release, which is ironic, if not downright tragic, considering Cristal is a wine that starts peaking around age 15-20, and that can last much longer under ideal storage conditions.In the best vintages one tank of Cristal Rose is also made that features the exquisite Pinot Noir of Ay.
